Oh My Goodness!

Standard

Well I was determined that this month I would dedicate to finishing the wedding album I started for Paul and Kayle, so that it would be ready for their first Anniversary next month.  That meant no other LOs and no counterfeit kit, but then I saw the October kit and, realising that I had those resin flowers, October Afternoon stickers and some papers to match, I thought, “well perhaps a page kit.”  One page wouldn’t hurt.

Well I think I went a little further than a page kit, although many are scraps rather than whole sheets:

The papers are predominantly white, while the October Afternoon stickers are cream based. I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to make them work together, so I pulled out some other stickers:

The yellow chevrons I made from a couple of offcuts from another LO:-



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I adhered the two strips together, lining up the stripes and covering over the manufacturer’s product strip.  I trimmed the two ends, which left me with a small piece, which I could adhere at the side and then trim to give a small piece with three diagonals to the chevron and a longer ‘arrow’ strip.

This long strip I could use as it is or I could cut two strips from either side and then adhere them to the opposite side to create a strip of equal size but with smaller chevrons.

I’ll wait and see how inspiration strikes.  Meanwhile I have made a page from the kit already – using the smaller yellow chevron piece and a photo of The Niece, taken at Puddle Duck’s First Holy Communion.

I added some gems and changed the alphas – I only had one letter ‘s’.  The title comes from The Niece’s favourite saying of the weekend – she drove us all mad saying ‘Oh my goodness’ at the slightest thing.

I have another couple of LOs in my head from this kit – so much for good intentions, maybe Paul and Kayle won’t mind waiting for a Christmas present………
